THE BODYGUARD - Alhambra Theatre, Tuesday 2 - Saturday 13 June 2015
SPAMALOT - Alhambra Theatre, Monday 22 - Saturday 27 June 2015
Michael Harrison and David Ian are delighted to announce the UK and Ireland tour dates for TheaSharrock\'s hit production of the West End musical THE BODYGUARD. The tour will arrive at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford on Tuesday 2 June 2015 for a two week run.
Based on Lawrence Kasdan\'s 1992 Oscar nominated Warner Bros. film, THE BODYGUARD has a book by Alex Dinelaris and opened at the Adelphi Theatre in London\'s West End in December 2012, where it continues to play to packed houses and standing ovations. It was nominated for four Laurence Olivier Awards including Best New Musical and Best Set Design.
Former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge; what they don\'t expect is to fall in love. A romantic thriller, THE BODYGUARD features a host of irresistible classics including Queen of the Night, So Emotional, One Moment in Time, Saving All My Love, I\'m Your Baby Tonight, Run to You, I Have Nothing, I Wanna Dance with Somebody and one of the greatest hit songs of all time - I Will Always Love You.
Monty Python\'s SPAMALOT gallops back out on tour to bring the West End production to theatres across the land (to the sound of banging coconut shells). Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT is a kind-of new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score for the new production, (well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
SPAMALOT tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation\'s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader\'s Digest Poll 2010 - before it went bust), Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.
The latest tour, which is directed by Christopher Luscombe, follows hot on the heels of the can\'t-believe-how-successful-it-was-with-the-first-show-selling-out-in-40-seconds Monty Python Reunion at The O2 and Eric Idle\'s acclaimed performance of \'Always Look On The Bright Side of Life\' at the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony - the world sang along, and Spamalot audiences get the opportunity to do so too! During the run, there have been 21 onstage moustache incidents, three suspected cases of swine flu (French pigs!), three outbreak of nits and 92 pairs of coconuts.
SPAMALOT lands in Bradford on Monday 22 June 2015 for ONE WEEK ONLY!
